On Friday H and I hosted a friend we inherited from my parents. It wasn’t all visiting since her roll is more professional but we have always considered her a friend. During the summer she visited with her friends in China and was kind enough to remember H as she enjoyed her trip. She brought H a package of Jasmine tea pearls. They both love all kinds of tea and can chat about it for hours. I find myself on the outside of their conversation often. My idea of tea is Lipton sweet served over ice on a hot summer day. They discuss varieties and the best method for brewing. I will say at one point on Friday they did get my attention during all the tea talk. Watching the beautiful flower unfurl in the cup and catching the sweet delicate smell of Jasmine was heavenly.
